My name is Chuck Simmons, and I'm a truck driver, and also the safety director for the company. (Yes, it's small... about 20 trucks and drivers.)
I don't get out OTR much these days, but I'm still battling to shed the weight I put on when I was driving 500 miles a day and smoking. I quit the cigarettes in 2005, and I started working in the safety dept. in 2007. Now I just need to focus on eating right and exercising. Neither is easy (don't we ALL know it!) but I'm moving in the right direction! I've lost about 20 pounds since I started back on Spark a few months ago. For me, tracking really does make a huge difference!
Well, I'll be on here pretty often, so hopefully I'll get to know some of you as time goes on. And yes, if you have any questions about the new HOS regs, the new cellphone ban, or anything else related to the FMCSA safety regs, feel free to ask. Like I tell the other drivers I work with; you don't have to like them, but it really helps to understand them!
Have a great day!
